    I m not sure how to feel about this book It was written in the 80s, so I guess it was progressive for its time It s nice that the authors show that Moms can have careers, and that they need to take time to do things for themselves But a lot in the beginning middle of the book bothered me I hated that the father bear shrugged off the original suggestion of Mama going into business without even asking her what she wanted or thought One businessbear in the family is enough, and of course tha I m not sure how to feel about this book It was written in the 80s, so I guess it was progressive for its time It s nice that the authors show that Moms can have careers, and that they need to take time to do things for themselves But a lot in the beginning middle of the book bothered me I hated that the father bear shrugged off the original suggestion of Mama going into business without even asking her what she wanted or thought One businessbear in the family is enough, and of course that bear would be the man, in his view I was really expecting the story to end with her deciding that she had fun with her little project, but it was time to go back to being a good mom and wife I m glad that it did not end that way, but does the shop or her working appear in any of the other stories If not, it could definitely leave the impression that a woman working is just a short term amusement

    Even though Mama Bear loves being a mama, she doesn t often have time to do something just for herself Her nightly quilting time is her only hobby she can seem to squeeze in One sunny day she puts her quilts out to air and they drew attention from many bears who wanted to purchase them thus launching Mama s new career What I loved most about this book was the way the family came together to support her, even though it meant pitching in with tasks a bitthemselves.

    Mama Bear gets a job I like that Mama Bear is shown to have skills that are of value I like that she is shown doing what s right for her here, and how her going to work also benefits the family But I don t like Papa Bear s initial attitude And honestly, I m not even sure that Mama Bear stays a working bear after this book does anyone see her with the shop in any of the other books I ve been looking for it, but just don t see itEither way, I would say the good outweighs the bad This is Mama Bear gets a job I like that Mama Bear is shown to have skills that are of value I like that she is shown doing what s right for her here, and how her going to work also benefits the family But I don t like Papa Bear s initial attitude And honestly, I m not even sure that Mama Bear stays a working bear after this book does anyone see her with the shop in any of the other books I ve been looking for it, but just don t see itEither way, I would say the good outweighs the bad This is something that kids need to understand, and while this thought might have been kind of new the mom going back to work back when this book was written, it s still valid storyline in that many mom s take time off of work still to have children, and go back when those kids are older Overall Not a bad book, but could have been better

    I got this from the library to read to my children at bedtime because they really like Berenstain Bears right now and we ve read my entire collection This book is about Mama Bear deciding to open her own quilt shop which causes changes in the family because she s no longer a stay at home mom.It s not a horrible book for showing how things change when both parents work My criticism is that Mama Bear just decided to go to work on her own and didn t discuss it with Papa Bear at all It is huge I got this from the library to read to my children at bedtime because they really like Berenstain Bears right now and we ve read my entire collection This book is about Mama Bear deciding to open her own quilt shop which causes changes in the family because she s no longer a stay at home mom.It s not a horrible book for showing how things change when both parents work My criticism is that Mama Bear just decided to go to work on her own and didn t discuss it with Papa Bear at all It is huge change and this is something that should be showed as a long thought out process, not a spur of the moment, lone decision

    This is the 6th Berenstain Bears book that I have read I love the tag lines at the beginning of these books This book s tag line is When Mama gets home too late for a meal, how will the cubs and Papa bear feel I think this book is a flashback to a simpler sort of life where the father worked and the mother stayed home and raised the children I love the way that these books display traditional family values I also like the way this book in particular takes the time to show that it is pos This is the 6th Berenstain Bears book that I have read I love the tag lines at the beginning of these books This book s tag line is When Mama gets home too late for a meal, how will the cubs and Papa bear feel I think this book is a flashback to a simpler sort of life where the father worked and the mother stayed home and raised the children I love the way that these books display traditional family values I also like the way this book in particular takes the time to show that it is possible for a woman to work and still be a very good wife and mother

    This is the first time I have read the Berenstain Bears in a book I used to watch the cartoon version when I was small It was fun going back to my childhood It was nyc to read how all the Berenstains joined together to help and encourage Mama in her business venture Wish there werefamilies in real life that offered such support in real life.

    I really like the Berenstain Bear book series A lot of my students like the beginning excerpt which tells the moral or lesson of the story in a cute rhyme It gives them a heads up as what they should be watching out for in the book and it helps them understand the lesson learned at the end These books are great for elementary children.
